Safety on the net. These are just MY thots.

Posted by muffled on January 10, 2008, at 0:42:53

I was thinking, one of the things I like about babble is that it is an open public forum.
What you post is there for all to see.
I use bmail up to a point, but there seems to be probs that crop up with bmail at times. I have seen it several times in my time here, and its very hurtful to those involved.
So I just pretty much keep clear of it.
If its on the boards its there for all to see.

Also, I had another point. What with there being quite a NUMBER of people posting here....and a fair group of 'regulars', well,that also provides satety, (as long as you posting and not bmailing)cuz if a converation seems to be taking a turn that is unhealthy, it is more likely to be noticed..... and CIVILLY!!! commented on. So that is a safety buffer as well.
In a small group format, things can get pretty messed up.
This IS after all 'the net', and in fact we DO NOT know who we are neccessarily dealing with....

I think it takes time to build trust.
Just my thots.
I am NOT pointing a finger at ANYone. Just trying to help others be safe is all.
I am SO far from perfect, so I can hardly criticize another...
Take care, be safe.
